OK. That means that the initramfs scripts think they *have* found the root
FS and that it has been mounted, but that the kernel thinks differently.
To investigate the problem, please see the initramfs-tools man page,
especially the 'debug' and 'break' options. The last allows you to force
the initramfs into a debug shell at various points. Try 'break=bottom' and
check what the status of the system is at that point.
Note: probably the initramfs-tools maintainer can help you better with this
